New arrivals for the week of March 19, 2013
The Hobbit
Les Miserables
This Is 40
Zero Dark Thirty

Greetings everyone,

I am officially done with winter. Let's get started on spring! For some reason distributors decided to split this week's new releases into two release dates. Tuesday's big new releases were: "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" (directed by Peter Jackson) and "Zero Dark Thirty" (directed by Kathryn Bigelow). Friday has this week's other big titles: "Les Miserables" (w/Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried), "Rust and Bone" (2013 Golden Globe Nominee) and "This is 40" (w/Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Megan Fox and Jason Segel). We also got the animated series "Redwall" (based on the Brian Jacques books) and the "Spy: Series 1" (an award winning British comedy -- very funny). Check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

The History Channel's "Hatfields & McCoys" (from 2012, w/Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton) has won this week's shootout for the #1 position in the Top 100 Westerns listings. In a close second place is Sergio Leone's classic spaghetti western, "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" (1966, w/Clint Eastwood... of course). And, standing on the lowest step of the podium is "Unforgiven" (1992). Also making the Top 10 is "Dawn Rider" (2012, w/Christian Slater, Donald Sutherland and Jill Hennessy) and another relative newcomer, the Coen Brothers remake of "True Grit" (2010, w/Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Hailee Steinfeld). The rest of the list is an assortment of all the usual suspects. Here they are -- the Top 100 renters from the Westerns section:
1 HATFIELDS & MCCOYS
2 GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY, THE
3 UNFORGIVEN
4 DAWN RIDER
5 FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, A
6 SEARCHERS
7 ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST
8 DESTRY RIDES AGAIN
9 TRUE GRIT (2010)
10 BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
